Cleveland, July 20—The storm cen-
ter of the street railways strike has, ac-
cording to authorities, settled in Brook-
lyn, a suburb connected with Cleve-
land by a long high bridge. At uoou
150 employes of the Born Steel Range
company blockaded a car on the bridge
and dragged the motorman and con-
ductor from their posts, inflicting with
their fists and other weapons injuries
more painful than serious. Soldiers on
guard at the barn, abont a half mile
away, hurried to the scene, but the
rioters had taken refuge in a factory
which stands under the approach to the
bridge. The factory was surrounded
and the premises searched, but there
was no clew by which the guilty ones
could be picked out, so they beut their
efforts in assisting the bloodstained
motorman and conductor to move the
car, most of the windows of which were
broken by stones.
General Axline in, command of the
troops here, in order to personally view
the sltnation, took a ride today on an
Orange street oar. He was in civilian
dress and the oar was stoned at various
intervals all along the route, a rock
coming near hitting him. The general
took another trip through the troubled
districts but declined to give-a view of
Vigilance guards, while daylight
aid them, prevented trouble of a serious
nature. Preparations for mass meet-
ings at various points were made dur-
ing the day. It is expected that a large
one will be held in Monumental square
in the heart of the city tomorrow night
unless the mayor prohibits it. In pre-
paration tor one a platform was erected
today in Brooklyn to protest against the
action of Mayor Farley, of Cleveland,
who has assumed, under the authority
of an almost forgotten statute, the
police are the supreme power in Cuya-
hoga couuty. ibis leaves Mayor
Phelps, of the suburban, together with
his constabulary, shorn of their power,
and they don’t like it. The two mayors
are not on the terms that existed be-
tween the storied governors of the two
Carolinas The soldiers and the Cleve-
land chief of the executive special po-
lice in Brooklyn are not allowed to use
public hydrants to get water, it is said,
and upon various occasions bayonets, of
necessity, were used to convince the
shopkeepers that it was wisest to
sell the soldiers what they wanted.
Mayor Farley today mailed Mayor
Phelps a letter in which he declared if
the Cleveland cohorts had any more
trouble about getting water, Cleve-
land, which pninps water to the sub-
nrb, wonld at present aborgate the
trnoe and let the whole hamlet go
thirsty. Mayor Farley also issued a
statement to the strikers in which he
said the man who was more loyal to his
labor union than himself and his coun-
try was a coward and a bad citizen.
Cars were run on twelve lines of the
Big Consolidated today aud most of the
lines last night. President Mason of the
National Union of Street Employers,
in an interview today deolared as the
street car company according to his in-
formation, was losing thousands of dol-
lars every day the strike would
have to be settled soon upon the ad-
vances made by the company. Ia the
face of this President Everett today
again told the board of arbitration the
company had nothing to arbitrate. The
board was unable to take action look-
ing to a settlement in view of the atti-
tudes of the opposing forces.

Chicago, July 20—The brick makers
in all the nnion yards of Cook county
will stop work tomorrow morning in
pursuance of an order for a general
strike. The strike will be one of the
most serious in years, and if it con-
tinues only for a short period, it wilj
paralyze all building operations in the
oity and county. It is the avowed pur
pose of the brick makers not to permit a
car load of brick to be unloaded in the
city as long as the strike lasts, aud
the manufacturers admit that they are
helpless to deliver. Between 2,000 and
8,000 men will go ont. Trouble with
the manufacturers for the last six
months is the cause of the strike

JOHN KEETON’S CASE.

Barboursvillk, Kv , July 28—Clay
county clans are gathering here for the
trial of Wiley and James Baker, which
is set for tomorrow. Among the ar-

ecution of the Bakers. The Baker-How-
ard-White factions are on better terms
tonight than for many years It is said
a compromise is being effected and if it
goes through Wiley and James Baker
will not be prosecuted. If the factions
are armed, there is no indication of it,
and a peaceable settlement of the Clay

Wlmt the Ktradilion Law K»yH in Relation
to the Trouble.
Washington. July 26—Inquiry at
the state department fails to show there
is any legal authority for the reported
extradition from Mexico into Texas of
John Keeton under a charge of sheep
stealing aud his subsequent trial in
Texas for train robbery and murder.
The extradition law pledges the coun-
try to try the person surrendered only
on the charge preferred as a basis for
extradition. The conclusion is that the
Mexican authorities are refusing the
extradition on the charge of train rob-
bery because it was alleged Keeton was
only an accomplice, is also to be er-
roneous, and it is believed that the real
reason for the refusal is because the
crime of train robbing was committed
during the absence of the old lapsed ex-

change the regulations recently issued
for the free admission of cattlo to Cuba
